This is a decisive game and we must be ready for a fight."The United States have conceded three goals in each of their first two games, and they would need a lopsided victory to fix the damage already done to their position in the table.They could help themselves by improving their discipline, having played 90 of the 180 minutes of their first two games down to 10 men.

Sacha Kljestan will miss out on this match through suspension following his red card against Italy."It's disappointing to lose our first two games, but we're still in it until we're out of it," said defender Jonathan Spector."Whatever the case, we'll have to show up and give our best performance in the final group game.

I think we've learned a lot from our first two matches and hopefully we can get something out of the third with Egypt."
